Ted Nugent Will Release ‘Sweden Rocks’ On May 13


April 3, 2008

Eagle Rock Entertainment will release Sweden Rocks by Ted Nugent on CD May 13 [pre-book date April 23, Retail List Price $13.98]. The concert was captured at the 2006 Sweden Rock Festival, featuring the singer/songwriter/guitarist with drummer Mick Brown and bassist Barry Sparks. A DVD of the show will be released June 10.

One would be hard-pressed to name another intrinsically American Hard Rocker who backs up his talk with surefire action like Nugent. His non-musical pursuits have garnered as much ink as his hellfire rock’n’roll. Outdoorsman, hunter, Conservative Political Activist, and controversial spokesperson on behalf of The Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, Nugent epitomizes and embodies the ethic of the outspoken pioneer taking on all comers in all matter of debates…while still making damn sure to rock non-stop and without regret. Ted Nugent is an American Original.

But it’s his shotgun style of guitar playing that has endeared him to his huge fanbase. And it’s on a stage where that pepper spray of staccato notes is best appreciated. Although he has admitted to partial hearing loss due to his close proximity to massive amounts of ampage, he still cavorts about onstage like a man possessed. And his fans love it. In Sweden, in 2006, he’s still at the height of his powers and, if the reaction from the crowd is an indication, he hasn’t lost one iota of his arsenal.

Nugent split from his Detroit band The Amboy Dukes after their major hit (“Journey To The Center Of Your Mind”). As a solo artist, he has racked up an impressive string of hit singles and albums. With homes in both Michigan and Texas, he has maintained his public role as a noted author, columnist, and political activist while still selling over 35 million albums in his career, also famous for playing the Gibson Byrdland guitar. The Gibson guitar company has since named a model for him.
